Описание: Like no other music of its era, Moby's oceanic, bluesy electronica has summed up the millennial turn's rootless melancholia, in massive worldwide hits like "Porcelain," "Natural Blues" and "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?" His 1999 album Play sold over ten million copies and converted a whole generation to electronic dance music. With Destroyed, Moby has created a visual analogue to his gorgeous soundworld. The photographs in this volume record the sizeable portion of his life that is spent shuttling from plane to bus to venue to stage to party to hotel room to oblivion. "I hope that somehow in these pictures," Moby writes, "I'm able to convey the mundanity of touring, juxtaposed with those moments of the strange and/or sublime. One minute on tour you're by yourself in a soulless airport, the next minute you're flying over the most beautiful landscapes on the planet. One minute on tour you're by yourself in a soulless backstage area, the next minute you're on stage pouring your heart out to 75,000 people. Touring is all contrasts and strangeness, and that's what I'm trying to convey in these pictures." The 60 photographs in Moby: Destroyed accordingly veer from crowdedness to isolation, capturing the extremes of a life lived on the road. Also included is Moby's new album of the same name.

Описание: This second edition of "The Tinder Box," published in September 2014 by Seneca Books, provides readers with greater detail concerning events that occurred within the U.S. Forest Service from 1982 through 2008, and has a far more extensive Index. Since 1990 over 113,000,000 acres of America's timber lands have been consumed by wildfire, one of many disasters the U.S. Forest Service must be held accountable for. Over that same period the timber industry, companies engaged in making wood products, owners of properties adjacent forest lands, and the public at large have become incensed by the agency's ineptitude. To learn more read Christopher Burchfield's "The Tinder Box: How Politically Correct Ideology Destroyed the U.S. Forest Service." The book goes back to the very beginning--33 years ago--when the agency set about destroying itself from within. Readers will finally grasp those terrible events inside the agency, all of which took place entirely outside of public purview. Indeed, this is the first inside look at how--step-by-step, political correctness destroyed an American institution.
Описание: The never-before-told tale of the German-American who infiltrated New York s Nazi underground in the days leading up to World War II: Thrilling, well-researched, well-told, fascinating ("Minneapolis Star Tribune"). He was the first hero of World War II and yet the American public has never seen his face. William G. Sebold, a naturalized American of German birth, risked his life to become the first double agent in the history of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He spent sixteen months in the Nazi underground of New York City, consorting with a colorful cast of spies. Sebold was at the center of the most sophisticated investigation yet devised by the FBI, which established a short-wave radio station on Long Island to communicate with Hamburg spymasters and set up a research office in Times Square that allowed agents hidden behind a two-way mirror to film meetings conducted between Sebold and the spy suspects. The result was the arrest and conviction of thirty-three spies, still the largest espionage case in American history. The guilty verdicts were announced in Brooklyn federal court just hours after Adolf Hitler declared war on the United States on December 11, 1941, which meant that the Fuhrer could not call upon a small army of embedded spies and saboteurs during the most trying days of the coming struggle. As you know, an FBI official later told J. Edgar Hoover, Sebold gave us the most outstanding case in Bureau history. In "Double Agent," Peter Duffy tells this full account. Here is a story rich with eccentric characters, suspense, and details of spycraft in the war s early days .The result is a compelling cultural history with all the intricacy and intrigue of a good spy novel ("The Boston Globe")."
Описание: Gary Webb is the former San Jose Mercury News reporter whose 1996 �Dark Alliance� series on the so-called CIA-crack cocaine connection created a firestorm of controversy and led to his resignation from the paper amid escalating attacks on his work by the mainstream media. Author and investigative journalist Nick Schou published numerous articles on the controversy and was the only reporter to significantly advance Webb's stories.Drawing on exhaustive research and highly personal interviews with Webb's family, colleagues, supporters and critics, this book argues convincingly that Webb's editors betrayed him, despite mounting evidence that his stories were correct. By providing a probing examination of the one of the most important media scandals in recent memory, this book provides a gripping view of one of the greatest tragedies in the annals of investigative journalism.

Описание: A new understanding of one of the most decisive eras in European history, captured in extraordinary detail by a renowned scholar The latest addition to the landmark Penguin History of Europe series is a fascinating study of the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, when dramatic changes led to the collapse of Christendom - a millennium in the making and established the geographical and political frameworks of Western Europe as we know it. From peasants to princes, no one was untouched by the spiritual and intellectual upheaval of this era. Martin Luther's challenge to church authority forced Christians to examine their beliefs in ways that shook the foundations of their religion. Geographical and scientific discoveries undermined the unity of Christendom as a belief community. In its place, Europe modern, divided, frequently at war with itself emerged as a collection of nation states. Thomas More, Shakespeare, Montaigne, and Cervantes chronicled these changes in works that continue to resonate with us. Addressing all this and more, Christendom Destroyed is award-winning historian Mark Greengrass's magnum opus: a rich tapestry that fosters a deeper understanding of Europe's identity today.
